Birthday card for a young Cancer Warrior
Thinking of You cards for a young boy and girl who are battling cancer.
I am going to take this opportunity to ask you to support organizations that help families battling cancer. My personal choices are : CureSearch (funds research for treatments and cures of childhood cancers) The Leukemia/Lymphoma Society and Julia's Rainbow.
Julia's Rainbow was set up by my friend Kathy to help families that are trying to cope with the challenges of childhood cancers. Kathy is using Julia's Rainbow to pay forward all the support her family received while her daughter, Julia, battled Leukemia (twice). Julia is a happy. healthy 8 year old now.
In the spirit of "paying it forward" I have just completed a 20 page scrapbook of the Miracle Miles 5K Fun Run that was organized by some very special ladies in my neighborhood with the always Amazing Stacy leading the efforts.
This event was a benefit for one of our neighborhood families that has a very young child battling a brain tumor. I am proud to say that many of my internet friends contributed amazing cards that were raffled off at this event. Heartfelt thanks to all of those who contributed. The 5K event raised over $5200.00 and the cards contributed to that total.
The scrapbook of this event was my first attempt at 8" x 8" scrapping. The sheer number of photos I had made 8 x 8 scrapping a real challenge but I managed to get 89 photos onto 20 pages. I still have to scan those pages and I'll upload those in a later post.
Thanks to all of you who check out my little blog and especially to those of you who leave such kind comments. Love you guys!!!
